In memory of Fred Astaire (May 10, 1899 - June 22, 1987)

Thirty years ago today, the world became a much sadder place when Fred Astaire smiled his last smile. Luckily, we can turn on the TV or turn to our computers and see that smile whenever we feel the need—which in my case is often. Few things brighten me up in quite the same way. His smile was so full of light, love, passion, kindness, humor and depth that even in my saddest moments it’s impossible not to smile along.
